Correction! It seems that we overlooked an important detail in this patent. It was clearly filled waaay back in June 2008. The pub. date of January 2013 threw us off.
Nothing new here.
With all the hoopla surrounding next gen systems, it seems that Sony may not be done with its current gen peripheral, the PlayStation Move.
A recent patent filed by the conglomerate reveals a sharp new design for the peripheral that could provide gamers with a better handle on the Move wands.
The design features a slick new handle as well as a more accessible button layout. I’m no fan of motion tech in video games but I’d have to admit that this design looks pretty attractive when compared to the current one.
Soccer, or should we say, football fans may get a kick out of this. Attach two Move wands to your ankles and you’ll be shooting for goals just like David Beckham, only in the comfort of your living room. Just make sure you’ve got a cushy surface to land on first or this idea could prove to be a dangerous one.
